Haha, I know I shouldn’t laugh, but some of these stories bring a bit of a chuckle to my lips 😛
I am terrified of other people vomiting. Yes, other people. Obviously I wouldn’t like to vomit myself, but I can handle that (if I’m sick or whatever). But there was this one time at school I saw a kid in the hall, and he looked like he was about to. I walked past too far to see it, and when I started hearing the other kids go “EWWWW”, I BOLTED out of the school and ran to my house crying haha.
Needless to say when the school phoned my home to tell them I had gone missing, my mom said “Nope, she said a kid barfed so she ran home.” -blush-

@KatieColorado: I think that’s a really intense experience, first to witness a serious accident and then the adrenaline of going to the car and checking and thinking the person might be dead. Yikes.

Look Im a veteran of two deployments and spiders scare the crap out of me…especially the big zombie looking ones..if you havent seen a camel spider…go google it…can get as big around as a dinner plate.
So years ago a boyfriends neighbor had a tarantula…they thought it would be funny to put it on me….it got dead in a hurry..i knocked it off on the ground and stomped on it. Was in Iraq in the desert and a camel spider was crawling around on my sleeping bag and I nearly had a heart attack..unfortunately your not allowed to discharge a weapon at them…damn shame if you ask me…so im flailing around in my sleeping bag in the dark and cant get out and this thing is huge,,,,I swear it was going to eat me..
I didnt sleep for weeks after that…forget Al Quaida…I was more afraid of the spiders than I was of getting blown up.

I can’t believe your Fiance did that to you! I am petrified of spiders and my ex Fiance would always kill them for me. If someone ever held me towards a spider I would totally kick them where it hurts!

@esplanfreedom: To be fair, I didn’t even know that I would react that way. He knows I don’t like bugs but I’ve never ever cried when one has landed on me or something. I just scream, jump and brush myself off for a good minute lol.

Have you ever heard of a “house centipede?” If not, google it. I came home, flipped on the lights and saw one of these suckers crawling across my wall, was about 3 1/2 inches long, and I FREAKED out. I was by myself, SO was at work, and I called my mom and BAWLED over the phone and kept saying “oh my god what do I do??” I couldn’t bring myself to hit it with a shoe because it was so big, so finally, after 30 minutes of screaming and crying, I finally mustered up the courage to squirt the thing with 409, then sucked it up in my vacuum, then THROUGH THE VACCUUM IN THE DUMPSTER!
Looking back, it was a huge overreaction, I’m a grown ass woman calling my mother because there’s a bug on my wall, but holy shit, I was terrified at the time. I didn’t know what it was at the time, which didn’t help (only after hours of googling after the fact did I find out it was a relatively harmless bug). It’s so weird, because normally I’m not afraid of spiders or bugs. I think they’re gross but I have no problem squishing them and throwing them away. I think I just freaked because there was this huge nasty alien bug in my house that I’d never seen before in my life. Ugh, I had nightmares.

@LilliePad: OMG, that’s too funny! The worst part is I’m in my basement and now I’m imaging one of those scary bastards climbing onto me. I’m done with Wedding Bee for tonight! Thanks a lot! lol.

I’m like this with cockroaches, only worse.
Like, I wouldn’t have even taken the tissue paper back into the bathroom. DH would be doing that.
It’s to the point where he doesn’t even play around about teasing me with cockroaches- even dead ones stay far far away from me. He knows it’s his job to clean them up and keep me as far away from them as possible.
He has severe arachnophobia (to the point where he almost ran our car off the road because one was on his leg), so I take care of the spiders, he gets the roaches.

Haha, here’s an overreaction I committed back in 8th grade.
I came home and sat at my computer desk. Then, I noticed my minnow, Mr. Feeny, was no longer in his fish tank. That is never a good sign. I found Mr. Feeny dried to the floor, bruised and missing scales. I scraped him up with a piece of paper and tossed him back in the tank. His gills started moving. I was crying and frantic to keep him alive. Every time he stopped breathing, I tapped the glass and he’d wiggle a bit and his gills would get going again. My boyfriend at the time called and I was bawling into the phone and was totally incoherent. I hung up on him and he called me back repeatedly, but I ignored him. After a couple hours, Mr. Feeny died. I was SO distraught, especially since I knew the cat had gotten to him. I felt guilty because I had always laughed when the cat stuck his paw in the tank. I never thought he’d catch him.
I slumped against the wall hysterically crying. Then, I finally answered the phone. My boyfriend at the time got me to calm down to to him what happened. Here’s how the convo went:
Me: Baaaah, baaaaah! He’s dead! This is alllll my fault! Baaaah!
Tiago: Who’s dead? Just calm down and tell me! Please!
Me: Mr. FEEEEEENNNNYYY!
Tiago: Mr. Feeny? Who is…The goldfish?
Me: He’s a minnow!
Tiago: The fish died?
Me: Bahahahaha, Mr. Feeny. Whhhhyyy?
Tiago: Nobody else died? Just the fish?
Me: My poor Mr. Feeny! Toonces killed him!
Tiago:…Ummm, my family is having dinner. Gotta go… Taco night…
13 year old girl hormones. Who knew?

@FutureMrsJohnson_: The other night, I got up out of bed to go to the toilet, and saw an outline of what I thought was a person in the kitchen. I gasped so loudly it woke SO up who was saying ‘what??!’, then I realised that it was the clothes horse on the table and the outline was the sheets draped over the top! OMG my heart was racing, I wanted to cry! Stupid thing was that I knew it was there, but half asleep I’d completely forgotten!

All types of house bugs cause me to freak out, especially centipedes and silverfish (those fucking silverfish used to love to hide in my bed, AHHHHH!!!), those suckers are fast and evil. I’m so happy I’m going to be living with my fiancé once we get married she because he kills bugs for me. If I ever got home from being with him and called him when I got home and found a bug in my room he’d spend like 30 minutes while I tried to get the balls to spray it with bug spray while I cried.
One time in particular it had been the 30 minutes and this centipede was huge and on the wall by my bed. I was getting ready to spray it when it ran and it was so big it fell and hit my headboard and you could hear the damn impact. Awful!!!!!!

@jazzy14: I’m actually suprised that noone has brought this up earlier. I am also petrified of butterflies. I have run crying out of butterfly houses before. It’s pretty embarrasing, but I don’t care. Those things are scary.
Mosquitos also scare me to death. If I get bit once, I can try and control myself. If I’m bit twice, I start asking to leave. If I get bit three times, I will start hysterically crying, and will go into flight mode. I am going on 28 years old, and I cannot handle being bitten by mosquitoes without having instant panic. I have ruined many “fun” summer activities for friends and family. Now I just won’t go outside at night during the summer… I know better.
